While we have a full calendar of community events that support the arts, education, equality and other causes that are dear to us, the annual Heart Walk is one of our favorites. This year, we joined forces with our friends at Strategic Property Partners (SPP). SPP is a full-service commercial real estate development firm with an incredible project coming to downtown Tampa, Water Street Tampa. By forming one team, our two companies walked together in the 2019 Tampa Bay Heart Walk to have an even greater impact on our abilities to raise funds this year.
Smith has sponsored a team for the past 6 years and promote it internally with pre-walk events and healthy living workshops. Last year, we hired a yoga instructor to come to our offices to give our employees a stretching break. We also have encouraged employees to participate in strengthening classes in office, at no charge to them. The Heart Walk becomes a culmination of stressing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how giving back to help others is also a tool to heath.
Our CEO, Bob Glaser, walks with us every year and we make it a fun family outing for all. Bob has also been a member of the American Heart Association’s Executive Board three times and started to support the walk after losing a close family friend to a heart attack.
By participating in the Heart Walk, we join a million Heart Walk Heroes from across the nation to raise funds for lifesaving science. Science that can teach us all how to live longer and be Healthy For Good. Heart disease and stroke are the #1 and #5 killers in the U.S. Please help fund lifesaving science by making a donation here.
